This is the best Johnlock story I've ever come across. I adore this, so much. Long read and completely worth every minute of it :)
The way you portray this romance is so beautiful and completely unlike anything I've read before. There's an unusual sense of paradox in it. So sensational and yet so logical. Sherlock's being selfish, and yet selfless too in his quest. Not-romance being romantic and romance being unromantic. It's amazing.
It's refreshing that your John and Sherlock don't just jump immediately into things, as I've seen them do in so many stories. John takes time to accept things and Sherlock doesn't even start out with 'love' on his mind (though I am completely certain where they'd end up, it's the process that's captivating), which are things I would completely imagine them doing. Sherlock's 'motivations', the 'completely scientific' way he tries to go about doing this — I really broke down at those, it's oddly hilarious and adorable and angsty all in a mix. I did start out being a little worried about how things would proceed, given how it started in the first place, since it showed some signs of an unhealthy relationship. I'm glad you make it sound, and so it worked out for them in the end :)
You are completely right about the genre — humour, angst, romance, they're all in here, and so perfectly incorporated together it's absolutely delicious.
Another thing I love about this fic is your Mycroft. He's manipulative, he's a big brother, and he's not just intelligent — he's wise. He's not simply being a manipulative bastard, calluse or over-protective in this story — he is a brother that truly wants what is best for Sherlock, and KNOWS what is best for him. Your portrayal of the relationship between the Holmes brothers is wonderful, even more so than stories that focus solely on it. Lestrade and Sally are great in their own rights too, being in no way flat characters at all.
Thank you so much for writing this :)

This was such an amazing, realistic story. Everyone was in character and Sherlock & John's fears were well-founded. The relationship was really well-developed. I liked having the different POVs. It kept the story interesting! I also liked Mycroft's POV in the epilogue. Always nice to get a third person viewpoint. Great job!

Awww... that was adorable. Kudos to Mycroft for his interference, Greg is amusing, Sally tolerable (not in the sense of the writing style, but her behaviour within the story)- she was doing what she thought was best- I do particularly love their protectiveness of one another :) ... and the Mummy Holmes was hilarious :) Thank you so very much for a quality piece of work

I loved the overall story, the tattoo included, but I have a feeling that John is going to get pretty tired of the question thing quickly.

haha i felt so silly after re-reading the summary, my brain for some unbeknownst reason decided to translate it as, john GETS married, and i was like, O_o Sherlock's going to seduce and win him over when he's married?! then lo and behold i realise that i've just misunderstood the summary lol
